FICKES FAMILY FUN DAY ON THE MT. RAINIER SCENIC RAILROAD

Over the weekend the wife and I and our 11-month-old daughter, Jocelyn, went on an adventure riding the rails of the Mt. Rainier Scenic Railroad in Elbe, Washington.

It took us from Elbe to Mineral, where there is a museum that educates guests about the history of the logging railroad in the Pacific Northwest.

Our family was afforded this opportunity thanks to a fortuitous opportunity I have to write blogs for the Mt. Rainier Scenic Railroad. We were given complimentary tickets so that we could go experience the train and, at the same time, I could research for my blog writing.

I’m so thankful that because of my job I’m able to entertain and educate my daughter at such a young, impressionable age. Jocelyn marveled at the cooing of the whistle blowing as the train coasted down the tracks south to the museum, transporting us back in time to a simpler era. Her eyes opened wide in awe of the new noise she was hearing.

It was enjoyable for my wife, Helen, and I to watch as our daughter enjoyed a new experience. We made sure to take lots of pictures!
